Kenilworth Abbey Barn

Kenilworth Abbey Barn is one of the many barns I have visited, which was originally a monastic building, in this case possibly the Abbot’s meeting hall, and was used as a stable after the dissolution of the abbey by Henry VIII.

It is a rectangular, sandstone building of two stories. It originally had an outside staircase giving access to the upper floor which had a raised cruck roof. This has been replaced with a tie-beam truss. The barn is now a local museum which is open every Sunday afternoon from May to September. It is manned by volunteers from The Kenilworth History and Archaeology Society.
